Do you have an amazing business idea that just needs to be shared? Now's your chance. As Canada's famous business reality show Dragons' Den is starting up their new season, they are calling towards all Canadians to come to their audition process for a chance to be featured on the show.
That's right, throughout the month of March Dragons' Den will be holding auditions throughout Canada that will be completely open to the public. The auditions are open to Canadians of all ages and of any stage of business development. If you think your idea has what it takes, all you have to do is show the producers what you've got.
All the producers are asking for is a five minute or less speech that showcases their business idea or concept. If the producers love your pitch and decide that you have what it takes to be in the Den then you will be invited back to pitch the idea to the real Dragons in Toronto.
The audition tour will be making its way coast to coast and will give Canadians from every province an opportunity to show producers what they're made of. The auditions will be kicking off in Toronto on March 2 and also end back in Toronto on March 30.
